St. Patrick’s Day fun

With many of us at home now, working and dealing with kids, it’s good to have activities to keep both the kids, and the whole family, busy. Since today is St. Patrick’s day, how about a word find for the whole family?

Over the next few days (and weeks) I’ll be posting various puzzles and games that I developed over the years, both when I was a teacher and some that I created recently. Hopefully they will provide for a bit of entertainment for all!
